I like the way they handled this. It truly is a matter of freedom of speech limits. Police HAVE to be above reproach. If that requires paying them more, good. By becoming an official with a badge and a gun you have created a contract between yourself, and myself, a citizen, that you will treat me fairly and within the confines of the law. That contract is also clear that you behave publicly in a way that is not threatening, nor treasonous in speech or gesture. So, I think this officer figured that out, and is getting appropriate social guidance. -DTS
